"Harmonious inhabitation:

Architecture in the climate emergency"

New practices of sustainability are not only necessary in the things we do in this world, but also in the way we inhabit this Earth. Through her passion for understanding the intersection between sustainability, health, and holistic wellbeing, Maria shows us how sustainability and even regenerative design can be incorporated in architecture, both large and small scale. In this series, she will share some of the sustainable design principles she champions in her own work and inspirations that we can introduce to our own living spaces.

As an architect at global architecture practice Grimshaw, Maria has experience working on projects ranging from major infrastructure, to cultural projects, to one-off residential. After registering and working in the UK, Maria currently lives and works in Melbourne where she is working towards certifying as a WELL Accredited Professional – a building standard that aims to achieve healthy buildings.
